Road Crews Out In Full Force
Heavy snow falls across the northern counties, with Yancey County being among the places hardest hit.
NCDOT crews are pushing plows all across the county and scattering salt and sand, trying to stay ahead of the storm that's packing quite a punch. But snow's sticking right behind all that scraping and that's making for a tough and tricky ride.
There are plenty of close calls out here.
"The fishtailing, the back end about come around the front of me.. just a few minutes ago.. so I'm still sort of shaky from that," said Victoria Ray.
It has been a white-knuckle kind of day for folks who are finding more snow on the road than they'd seen so far this winter. Some are not very good at navigating slick pavement.
But it's not just driving. Business is also being affected.
